Hey guys,
I just started growing chilies, and I love it!I been growing veggies for a few years, but I wanted to up the ante.
So I picked up a Hab at the Local Armstrong Nursery a few weeks ago (Mid April 2012).When I got home,
I decided to look in to it further and find out what else is :hot:

Here is my *Out Dated List, will be Updated soon*

Supers:
Brain Strain -never germinated
Brown Devil's Tongue
Dorset Naga
Bombay Morich
Manzano
B.B. Dauglah
Choc Hab
Choc x Red Hab
Orange Hab -seeds from store bought pod 20+ seedlings for experimentation.
White 7 pod - dead
Butch T
T. Scorp Red
Choc. Bhut x Yellow 7
Yellow Bhut -never germinated
Red Bhut -never germinated


Less Hots:
Numex H. 6-4 -Growing loads and giving away to family
Serrano
Goat -never germinated, but I got more seeds
Billy Goat - 100% Germination, Dr. Cres has good seeds
Arledge
Jalapeno -8+ plants for experimentation purposes.
Cayenne
Anaheim
Chile Verde
NuMex #6
Thai
Shisito -never germed
Pablano
H. Yellow Wax
Mexican Banana
Chilaca
Wiri Wiri
Tipen
Black Pearl
Black Prince
Explosice Ember
Guajillo
LG Cherry
Red Bell
Green Bell
Rainbow Bell
Cal Wonder Bell
"sweet peppers" -HomeDepot


After a few YouTube vids I discovered Bhuts, then dug deeper and found a plethora of varieties I had never herd of. About mid April 2012, I Joined THP to get some info, when I was BOMBARDED with Hospitality. I was given seeds and even a few seedlings.

Thanks to:

I now have somewhere around 20-30 Strains in all stages.

I have a nice little home made 100$ greenhouse that is already the home of a bunch of Veggies. Why not some Peppers?

Well enough ranting, here's SOME of what I got crackn'

Aight man! No pressure...I'm watching! Looking good

Glad you started a glog...the 7 pod/pot thing is a constant debate. It should be pot...as one pepper is enough to season 7 pots of chili.(or whatever you're trying to spice up)

Hope you get them all to pop...I have a bunch more varieties if you decide you may wanna try something else. As for the Bonchi, let them grow as big as they can for the season in a good sized pot. Maybe a 1 gallon, trim and shape along the way, but let them grow to get a nice sized stem before going into the small pot for the overwinter in a window full on bonchi style.

This plant is about 5 months old...need to pot it up for the summer now then I will put it in a true bosai pot for the winter.

Here is another of the same type plant in the same size pot.

Good luck with your grow brother!

Long story short...mother in law was into gardening, but when they retired they became full time RVers so now we have all their crap. Hence the frogs. They're a nice touch, and they were free. Not really a "froggy" guy, but keeping things pretty keeps momma happy...which in turn keeps her off my back about all the peppers.

These are about 2 weeks old, from dry seed to what you see in the pictures. I Germinate them in plastic containers wrapped in a wet paper towel.
Takes about 3-7 days for the seeds to pop. I then put the rooting seeds in to Sphagnum Peat Moss mixed with compost.
Then the babbies are put in to the incubator for about 2 days. After the 2 days, I pull them out to start up on some fresh air and a Solo cup.

I started using Rubber Mini Muffin trays to hold them while in the incubator. This allows me to pop out each plant individually, preventing the other seedlings from being disturbed.

As for lighting, I am using 4x 26w (100w eq) 6500k
One 26w (100w eq) 3500k
and a single, yet GIGANTIC, 68w (300w eq) 2700k

For a Total of 198watts and estimated 10,000+ lumens
During the day I pull the potted ones out for some good old sun.

Disaster!

Through the night my seedlings got white powdery mildew. :tear:
My White 7s are GONE, and so are 2 ButchT's. I had no idea a fungus could kill them like that in just 1 night.

I hit them with 3% H202 mixed with tap water and that killed the mold, but burnt the infected areas to a crisp.

So now I got better Air moving through, as well as a new respect for cleanliness. All the other seedlings are still alive, but hanging on by a thread. I haven't seen but 1 small spot of mildew on the soil since. The next set of leaves has come in on the Scorps and they are looking good.


So the last few days were a little depressing, until today...
"Sweet and savory mixture" is Here!!! :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:
